Lincoln Corsair Ranked 29th On 2024 American Made Index

The Lincoln Corsair has been recognized several times in the past for being a distinctly American entity, ranking sixth among all new vehicles on the 2023 Kogod School of Business Made in America Auto Index, while the plug-in hybrid Grand Touring model finished 23rd among that same group. That particular index uses four data points to calculate the total domestic content of all vehicles sold in the U.S. – the percentage of content that exclusively comes from the U.S. or Canada, the engine and transmission, the source of each of those components, and the location of assembly. Now, the Lincoln Corsair has followed up that result with another appearance on a similar list.

That list is’s 2024 American Made Index, and this time around, the Lincoln Corsair ranked 29th – just ahead of the Ford Mustang, which was 31st, as well as Ford F-150, which ranked 58th. The list was topped by the Tesla Model Y, with a grand total of 100 vehicles out of more than 400 making the cut this time around. To come up with these results, looks at a few different factors – the location of a vehicle’s final assembly, the percentage of U.S. and Canadian parts present in that vehicle, its countries of origin for all available engines and transmissions, and the maker’s U.S. manufacturing workforce.

From there, ranks each model on a 100-point scale, though it doesn’t reveal its exact methodology for doing so. Since some vehicles are produced in multiple plants in different locations, it accounts for that with scoring reductions for imported volume, and determines the percent of U.S. and Canadian content from the American Automobile Labeling Act, taking into account engine and transmission origins as well.

“Over the last year, domestic manufacturing was thrust into the spotlight by the recent United Auto Workers organizing efforts and continues to be a hot topic with the impending presidential election,” said Patrick Masterson, lead researcher for’s American-Made Index. “Pundits champion homegrown corporations as the key to investments in local and state economies. However, when it comes to the global automotive industry, the badge on the hood doesn’t always reveal a vehicle’s economic contributions.”
